. if a crisis can be averted. if democrats and republicans can come to an agreement on the big fight that has been frankly smothering american politics for weeks now. president obama announced earlier today that he wants to see a deal done by tomorrow on the big debt ceiling fight that has consumed every bit of oxygen in d.c. for the last few months. the president saying tonight that congressional leaders are on the clock. they have 24 to 36 hours to get a deal done. as planning a vote that the u.s. government should not default on our debt and shut down comes down to the wire, we are inching close enough to the edge here that two of the world's major credit rating agencies have warned that our national credit rating may be downgraded as a result of this standoff. the day that the u.s. would actually hit the debt ceiling and start going into default and shutting down is august 2. but this does not mean that we have until august 2 before we lose our national credit rating. that could just happen right now. because of the uncertainty and because of how long it is taking to get this done. right

, hi, there, thomas. it seemed like forget hope for getting a big deal done in the arena of $4 tril john lion in tt decade was dwindling, but republicans would not accept a deal that big and they wanted $2 trillion over the next decade, but as you mentioned president obama came out today swinging, upping the ante saying he does indeed want a big deal done and if not now, when? and he essentially tried to assume the position of the adult in the room calling on the lawmakers to rip off the band-aids and eat the peas and call to action for democrats and republicans and calling the democrats to come to the table for entitlement reforms, and the republicans for rolling back the tax breaks for wealthy americans and big corporations, and it seemed like at the last of last week, the president and the speaker boehner may have been moving in the same direction, but then speaker boehner said we cannot support anything that looks like a tax increase. and so the president addressed that in his conversation today, and he said that any tax brea increases would not take effect immediately. >> when

professor with the big ears and a funny name. now all bets are off. obama just might be willing to be the next president of the united states. it would be the capstone of an amazing rise for a politician whose charisma and personal story. the harvard educated has breezed life into the democratic party. at the heart of obama is his personality and presence. part preacher and professor and part movie star. his charisma seems effortless, his charm and afterthought. who is that guy? he certainly got it. he describes obama as the third african-american since reconstruction to serve in the senate. he delivered the keynote address at the 2004 national convention and won a grammy for the audio version of his memoir and he said he need look no farther than his desk in the senate chamber to be reminded of the last politician who embody the hopes of a generation, designed by its previous occupant including bobby kennedy. with that here we are today. conservatives, as we all know as late as last week, conservatives are questioning whether he was born, the degree to which progressives who ar
this economy and yeah, there's a big issue coming up with regards to the debt ceiling. the president ought to be in washington meeting with republicans, meeting with democrats, he shouldn't leave that town until he has an understanding of what it's going to take to get this economy going again and deal with the fiscal crisis that the country faces. but he's here raising money for a campaign. doesn't even have a primary opponent. >> the president was also in pennsylvania, the white house, though, fires back at that particular metal works plant, the allentown metal works that had been struggling for years when the president visited in 2009. president obama saying while i'm working, there will be candidates parading around the country and doing what they do can which is trying to attack. he told supporters in other parts of pennsylvania while mitt romney was there in pennsylvania. >> mitt romney did not mention his rivals. he's clearly taken the stance that i'm the frontrunner, i'm not going to mention tim pawlenty or michelle bachmann. why's he in pennsylvania? not an early primary state, k
something that that big a deal. so are you concerned, congressman west, about what happens come august 2nd? and that if it is, you know, the situation where people stop getting social security checks, that folks like you will pay for it come election time? >> no. my concern is we have a president that is not willing to do his job, and that is to prioritize the spending that he is digging in his heels being a rigid i'd log, and he must understand that every single one of his economic policies have failed. it's time he realize that he does not have the moral high ground in this argument and that we do have the right type of viable solutions in the near term and for the long term. martha: let me ask you this, in the caucus meeting that you were in this morning, what did you walk out of with in terms of whether or not there's going to be any deal? are we going to get any deal, or are so many republicans in the house basically digging in their heels and saying no deal? >> well, i think the thing right now is that we understand there's some principles that we're looking for, pretty much exactly

if a big bank goes under. second, it said to wall street firms, you can't take the same kind of reckless risks that led to the crisis. and third, it put in place the stronger -- the strongest consumer protections in history. now, to make sure that these protections worked - so ordinary people were dealt with fairly, so they could make informed decisions about their finances - we didn't just change the law. we changed the way the government did business. for years, the job of protecting consumers was divided up in a lot of different agencies. so if you had a problem with a mortgage lender, you called one place. if you had a problem with a credit card company, you called somebody else. it meant there were a lot of people who were responsible, but that meant nobody was responsible. and we changed that. we cut the bureaucracy and put one consumer watchdog in charge, with just one job -- looking out for regular people in the financial system. now, this is an idea that i got from elizabeth warren, who i first met years ago. back then -- this is long before the financial crisis -- elizabeth wa
's the big question, right? >> looking at the influence of the freshmen today, in general they believe and have very involved local voters to back them up that they were elected in 2010 with a mission to, reign in big government, specifically big government spending, and this debt ceiling debate fits right into that. here's more from one freshman tea partier. >> it would allow the debt ceiling to go up, but only if we had significant cuts, statutory caps and balanced budget amendment and there's a growing movement with that. we met with leadership, we met with majority leader eric cantor and were trying to impress upon them that we need to be for something as republicans, we need to define what we're for. >> senator paul says this is a fight, quote, too important to give up. jon. jon: what kind of influence do the new members have, though? >> well, republicans are in the minority and the senate, so less there, but in the house they're in the majority and tea partiers, or those who agree with the tea party on fiscal issues, among the 87 how freshmen have not been shy about staking their
are no longer serious about solving big problems. and that was sort of the subject of my first book in 2007 looking ahead to the 2008 presidential race. and the big issues in education, and health care, and energy, the environment and jobs, and so on, and i think that you can really see that playing out in washington right now as we have this debate about the budget. and that this budget debate in some ways has become about paul ryan and his plan and his thinking of the budget. but that the idea that we as a nation can all agree that there is one guy in washington talking seriously about the budget is an indictment of everyone else in congress who is not, that we're sort of at this point where you want to talk about the budget? there's one guy is taking this really seriously. he's the one who's thinking about how to solve the budget problem. these are huge issues. generational issues that are going to have to be solved one way or another. and the fact that there's not a larger debate that involves more people on both sides of the aisle i think is a stunning indictment of where we are in a p

with fake documents to get real passports and then come to the u.s. and a big part of the problem is that countries aren't sharing information with each other. part of this government accountability office report says "even when countries have terrorist screening information, they may not have reciprocal relationships to share such information or other traveler information such as passenger airline lists with other countries to limit the ability of preventing travel of known or suspected terrorists." even though a passport can't kill someone, it can help a bad guy get in position to do some serious damage. >> travel documents are the same as weapons to terrorists. they can't carry out their plots without them. with our partners, and again, some of that is out of our control. we're closer to a c. >> and this gao report deals heavily with the breakdown, basically in communication with other countries. here at home, though, we are not perfect because since november 2001, just a few weeks after 9/11, there have been 25,000 security breaches at u.s. airports. that's about seven a day a

with political philosophy in the house. as the debt line approaches and house republicans are going to have a big choice -- they picked this fight with the president for a reason, the debt limit is not going to be raised unless we do something on the deficit projections now and in to the future. but the problem with the house republicans is, they never answered affirmatively in a politically sa political politically saliable way what the a the answer should be. you have to have a plan that can pass both chambers and the president can sign. otherwise, you're talking past the other party. >> the question is, nicole, what is republican position right now? at the end of last week, we had republican leaders on in the house, guys i like very much personally. been a champion of paul ryan. back from the time i met him, in 1994. but we ask, what do you want? and their position was, it's not enough to close the tax loopholes. we've got to cut tax rates, income tax rates for individuals and corporations. that's not going to happen in 2011. they know it's not going to happen. i say, okay, let's say you got t

, some real big news, actually, because speaker boehner, it seems, may have a plan that will come to fruition, before 4 p.m. this afternoon so that the asian markets aren't rattled and it will involve sort of a two pronged approach. >> yeah, but the most important part of the two step process clayton mentioned there's going to be a short-term extension involved and the democrats have objected to that, as you know, from the very beginning, the president, nancy pelosi, harry reid all three last night reiterating they will not support a short-term extension. so it appears we are playing with some serious fire on this sunday. >> what does john boehner do, comes up and hands over the paper work, they immediately say no. listen to this, thises what mitch mcconnell has to say about this. there is bipartisan agreement on the need to prevent fault and given the unprecedented size of the debt ceiling increase, the president is requesting, this is not an easy process. and the effort to prevent default while substantially reducing washington spending will continue. >> of course, all of the co

to be an american? not a big change when president obama came to office. what does that say to you? guest: remarkable continuity about something that is very important in defining this as a people. it does not seem to matter whether we have a democratic or republican president. we are patriotic nonetheless. host: james, pittsburg, republican line. caller: my comment is that you have to poll the younger crowd and they are the strongest and the fastest and most easily -- and it is easier for them to take in all the information they have take in. they are more alterable to become a soldier and not many of them are politically savvy. once they get into the war, they are generally -- most of the men i know that have come back especially from this war and from vietnam, they speak to the fact that they were fighting for its other. host: we will leave it there. guest: that is true. men who have had that experience in war talk about it that way. they also love their country. one of the things we see, it's a hard thing to take polls of soldiers because it's tough to do. but when you do, they are ve
